Here's a shot of the desk and the wall I face as I
On my desktop you can see a few cards I made this weekend...good, basic, everyday cards for the finished cards bin. Nothing too complicated, nothing too fancy...just "get 'er done" cards. Need to make about 50 more....teehee
Here is a bit more of a close up.
The images were stamped and then later coloured, at the weekly craft nights I do with my next door neighbour. It is easy to carry a few stamps, some ink and my copics over and stamp off a few pages of images. Another evening I will just bring the images and my pens. On the nights she comes to my house I can just do the same...easy peasy!
I chose some images that I though would work for 5 and even 6 year old's, and created a couple of little girl cards. I had some scalloped circles already cut out so these were really fast to make. The card bases were from a box of prefolded cards and envelopes that I am trying to use up.
I was on a bit of a kick, so did one in more masculine colors...I am not too fond of that one. I thought the scalloped circles were too girly for a masculine card so I cut the edge of the orange scallop circle with some really old deckle edge scissors. There is just something about it that I'm not happy with...but a 6 year old little boy won't hardly look at it so...into the finished bin it goes!
Lastly I made a couple of square cards for younger teen girls. I managed to use a few flowers and was quite pleased about that! Not sure that I like the pink and bright green one. I should have made the green piece narrower and I think the flower looks too "busy"! It is done now so I will leave it and some 9 or 10 year old might like it!
After all, it was all about getting 'er done!! I do still have to stamp a birthday verse on the inside of these cards...I hope to get that done tonight.

I am submitting these cards to the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - Must use snippets...Everything on these cards is either from my older stash or the snippet bins. Some items are more than 5 years old!
